  • woke_teen_ebook noahbot (@woke_teen_ebook) reported

    monthly login into Overwatch to say "*** bolg"

  • ManicMaple Chuuni Kaede (@ManicMaple) reported

    @DakrudaDragon Stasis pre-nerf's biggest problem (imo) was that it lacked counterplay. Stasis was introduced in to a game without abilities like unstoppable, cleanse, etc like in Overwatch, League, Hots, etc and the TTK is too fast for hard CC abilities like stasis.

    @donovandaydream @littlezaytouna Why are you so angry? I swear y’all gotta start problems outa no where for no reason. Why can’t you guys just have differing opinions and that’s it? Go pray or play some Overwatch

  • JustABlokeTV Just A Bloke (@JustABlokeTV) reported

    Overwatch is so frustrating... does 18k healing, apparently not enough... was the highest of the 4 healers in the match. Meanwhile our widow has 6 kills... but healing is the problem

  • 2TonWaffle 2TonWaffle (@2TonWaffle) reported

    Problems continue with Fallout 76, so playing Overwatch tonight.

  • UnknownNeo Neo Unknown (@UnknownNeo) reported

    1: Bandanna Waddle Dee. Can't stop, won't stop, this is my personal top choice. 2: Crash Bandicoot. It's now or maybe next game. Who knows if the company who made the game will still be there. Aren't they an Overwatch factory now? What happened to Bob and his toys?

  • JupiterXrin Saturn🪐 (@JupiterXrin) reported

    Okay so I uninstalled and reinstalled both OBS and Overwatch so here's to hoping the ******* problems are fixed??? Gods this **** is annoying smh.

  • MorganTan03 Morgan (@MorganTan03) reported

    With Blizzard releasing OW2 and not just fixing OW as well as making OW2 5v5 to band aid fix its fundamental problems, it's really not looking so good for Overwatch if I'm being honest.

  • Xaturnis s a t u r n ☄ (@Xaturnis) reported

    blizzard better fix my overwatch account or I'm hella gonna throw a fit wtf. 🤬

  • Revenge_I_Guess Random name, Random Artist (@Revenge_I_Guess) reported

    @Warpedoverwatch @overwatchleague @IBMSports It runs into various issues when it comes to the characters in Overwatch. The system only has to calculate a player based on their performance and compare that to other singular players. There are MILLIONS of players it would have to calculate for comparison and on top of that-

  • nrose1000 2021 Big Ten Champions (@nrose1000) reported

    @joshfromireland @DrLupo Facts, card loadouts and item purchases keep the game fresh even if the same champions are meta. The ONLY negative thing about Paladins is all the bugs, but if they had the amount of players Overwatch got, they’d be able to fix all of those bugs. They need to market the game more

  • rocketsquire ceo of fareeha amari (@rocketsquire) reported

    @LukarWarrior So they've written most of their ideas out already?? hmm... not a problem for overwatch i think lol

  • BreedFags BreedMyFag (40% off OF & JFF) (@BreedFags) reported

    The problem with Overwatch is that blizzard changes the game based on pros and the top 500 players feedback. So what made and makes the game fun has been nerfed/continues to be nerfed to death.

  • ItsGroma ⭐ gromi⁷🔞 vtuber 🌙 (@ItsGroma) reported

    @reapzlbbh If every Overwatch player spent as much time complaining about which hero is or isn’t broken, instead learning to improve and play the game, they’d probably rank up and stop having so many problems with whatever hero they think is such a problem 💀

  • logan_mans Chef Manzy (@logan_mans) reported

    @Kuso_Nezumi @iamAlfiie @hiizuruu The issue for me for Overwatch skins is for the amount of money you put in. There is no difference to skin aesthetics. Rainbow does a good job of implementing and fixing that issue

  • th3numb3r1hero 𝙨𝙥𝙖𝙘𝙚 𝙘𝙤𝙬𝙗𝙤𝙮✨ (@th3numb3r1hero) reported

    @clawthxrnee @clawthxrnee FIX YOUR PC I WANNA PLAY OVERWATCH

  • mintyoongem tea⁷ (@mintyoongem) reported

    I tried downloading overwatch today but I can't login to my account 🥶

  • appleciderwitch yeah but (@appleciderwitch) reported

    Playing Overwatch when you have a problem with working memory is why I will straight up miss an ult going off because I GA'd to a teammate to heal them and then fly straight back into Hammond mines because I was unaware they were there

  • garukkou Vale (@garukkou) reported

    @vusjibin I remember at one point in the t500 overwatch scene a lot of people swore off of caffeine after realizing that the crash was affecting them really harshly

  • VictoriaIsBored VictoriaIsBored (@VictoriaIsBored) reported from Pomona, California

    I have such a problem with capturing likeness, that I don't let myself not draw the face of a person, unless the pose demands it. I switched to playing siege because I wanted to get better at fps games, because I can't accept being a support main in overwatch.

  • Jayykkr Jay (@Jayykkr) reported

    anyone know where i can check my gpu usage for overwatch or however you call it cuz maybe its overwatch causing problems to my gpu temperature/usage

  • robert40712038 robert (@robert40712038) reported

    @Blizzard_Ent why is overwatch so trash right now man I have lost 15 games and only won 3 fix this ****

  • FrootyBunny Frooty (@FrootyBunny) reported

    Had to make a new instagram account due to people attempting to login to my old one; caused me to get temp banned. New one is FrootyBunnyOW :) #overwatch #overwatchleague #OWL2021

  • Wow_Such_Gaming Wow Such Gaming (@Wow_Such_Gaming) reported

    @WiseFishGaming @Arrrrash My biggest pet peeve are people rubber banding controllers in games so they don't get autobooted, so they can get match XP, but become a useless teammate. Still don't know how that problem hasn't been fixed. Overwatch autokicks you if you haven't moved a few feet from spawn.

  • iAgent_Ash Agent_Ash (@iAgent_Ash) reported

    @Extravaganzazz @horrorvisuals Apparently, some actually can't. Are you familiar with the drama surrounding the Brigitte character in Overwatch? I **** you not, people kept harassing the voice actress behind her for the *gameplay* issues. I don't know what goes on in the heads of those people.

  • lth_rg Lth-RG (@lth_rg) reported

    @kaoruchisato The one problem I have with overwatch is that rather than learning how to counter certain characters abilities and strats, they just complain to Jeff and he just nerfs the hell outta them. But other than that it’s an okay game imho

  • Unclerodney_ UncleRodney (@Unclerodney_) reported

    Overwatch. Fix how you do sr in comp. @PlayOverwatch I can’t have a positive record and be dropping. Like bro

  • itsginba angústia. (@itsginba) reported

    @Neqtuen this is a bug because it doesn’t do heal and overwatch needs to fix it very soon just like moira’s yellow damage thing 🙄

  • multiibebe Salena (@multiibebe) reported

    Pretty sure I got DDoS'd or whatever during an Overwatch game. Chilling in QP, dude gets absolutely pissed he kept dying to Hanzo headshots (but he was out of position as Ashe) and started to throw. Whatever, I didn't care. 2nd round the tanks and other --

  • PizzzaGuardian Slice of Destiny (@PizzzaGuardian) reported

    @reapzlbbh Overwatch heroes are so incoherent with eachother that at this point Overwatch 2 would have to be a clean slate rebuild just to fix the first games issues.
